I can't help but think mental illness and mind/mode altering prescription drugs are the issue. They don't prescribe many "mental health" drugs to people under certain ages (typically 18) because it causes suicidal tendencies. Who's to say it doesn't do that to older folks too it just goes undocumented for some reason. I mean, older people will be more likely to deny thoughts of suicide because they know the implications. Technically, suicide and murder are the same. They often go hand in hand. You're killing someone whether it's yourself or someone else or both.
